Frequently Asked Questions
Help! We're awkward AF in front of the camera, is that ok?!
heeeeck yes do no stress at all! 99% of my couples tell me this before each and everyone of my sessions, i'm here to help and guide you guys through it and to break the awkwardness, trust me its nowhere near as scary as you might thing (ive got a killer guide full of tips and tricks so don't worry ive got you!)
What will it be like having you as our photographer?
big heck no's to awkward stuff posing thats for sure! i'm a go with flow kinda gal and im there to document the day as it unfolds, ill try my best to dish out killer dad jokes but most the time im a fly on the wall until I don't need to be (group shots etc)
i'm more about bringing out those natural responses, ill still give you direction but I dont want you to look at a photo and think 'oh thats when she told us to fake laugh' i want you to look back with pure emotion, how you were laughing because he was retelling the time he stacked it at work and they caught it on the surveillance cam
those photos will mean a heck tonne more then me just throwing cue after cue after cue at you
How long will it take to receive our photos?
Anywhere from 4-6 weeks
How do we book you?
To secure your date a contract needs to be signed and a 20% retainer needs to be put down
Do you use backups?
Yes!! I have a very detailed backup system but I always make sure I have 2 camera bodies with me at all times (with a 3rd in my car) then each camera has 2 camera slots so the photos are being backed up on the day
at home I upload the raws to my NAS raid system (google it its pretty confusing) then 2 standard hard drives and a cloud system (so 4 total backups with 1 being offsite in case of fire/theft etc)
if you are super curious about my backup system on my instagram I go over it in my story highlights called 'hustle'
Where are you based? Do you travel?
I'm based in Perth Western Australia (if you've never heard of it google it, and google quokkas too, won't regret it)
and heck yes I do travel! flick me a message and we can suss out our options
